Vermont Fund Administration

In 1994, the State of Vermont established its first state-wide Universal Service Fund. The purpose of the Vermont Universal Service Fund (VTUSF) is to support the Vermont Telecommunications Relay Services (VTTRS), telephone Lifeline Assistance and the development of state-wide enhanced Emergency 911 service. Vermont law also provides that in the future, pending additional action by the legislature, the fund may be used to support telephone service in high-cost areas of Vermont.

The Vermont State Act (No. 197) of 1994 requires all telecommunications carriers offering services to the citizens of Vermont, both intrastate and interstate, to assess a universal service charge, effective October 1, 1994, for retail telecommunications service provided and/or billed to a Vermont address.
